Ricki Herbert bowed out as All Whites coach last night, proud of a team that had exposed Mexico at times in the 4-2 defeat at Westpac Stadium. - New Zealand Herald
New Zealand END World Cup DREAM New Zealand have ended their 2014 FIFA World Cup ambitions as they have lost 4-2 against Mexico on home soil in the return-leg of the intercontinental play-off. In front of a packed Westpac Stadium in Wellington, the All Whites produced a much-improved performance after their 5-1 defeat of the first-leg, but it wasn't eventually enough to win a ticket to Brazil next year as Mexico prevailed with an aggregate score of 9-3. New Zealand's hopes had already vanished at the interval, as the visitors were leading 3-0 after the first 45 minutes thanks to a Oribe Pereira hat-trick. Ricki Herbert's side had a golden chance to come back to the game when Jeremy Brockie was awarded a penalty in the 38th minute, but the Wellington Phoenix striker was his effort saved by Mexican goalkeeper Moises Munoz. However, the All Whites showed some pride and produced a good display of football in the second stanza, where they scored twice in the last 10 minutes through Chris James – who converte ...
So Mexico have eliminated the All Whites from the World Cup before a ball has been kicked. They're world class and that draw was ruthless towards a team like ours. After 2010 several players got lucrative contracts in different parts of the world on the back of the All Whites going undefeated, quite simply we needed a World Cup place to allow Football/Soccer to flourish. Thank you Ricki Herbert and Ryan Nelsen for the efforts and taking us to a point where we began to break through

Emotion can't drive Phoenix to victory An emotional Chris Greenacre is bracing for a grim struggle to avoid the wooden spoon after his Phoenix coaching debut ended in a loss last night.

Dear Ricki Herbert. Thanks for everything, you were awesome but the passion has gone & it really is time to go. Love you long time, Vance.
With Ricki Herbert gone that makes 5 managers now this season who have either quit or been shown the door. It's a high turnover of coaches but it's better than a high turnover of clubs which has been the case in the A-League the past couple of years. Pod coming later tonight.

Wellington Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert has quit after a dismal run of results leaving the New Zealand-based club rooted to the bottom of the A-League. Herbert, who has coached the Phoenix since its inception in 2007, said he wanted to concentrate on his role as coach of the New Zealand national team and it was time for a new man to bring in a "fresh" approach. "I've had a long and very successful tenure at the club and will always be proud of what I have achieved," he said in a statement. "But all good things must come to an end and it's time for new coaching blood and for me to move on to new and exciting challenges." Herbert, 51, was the Australian A-League's longest-serving coach and guided the Phoenix to three finals series. (News.com)

Marquee star Del Piero delighted 12,691 home fans with one of the finest individual performances seen in the A-League, netting the competition's second-fastest hat-trick in the first half and adding another goal after halftime. While the 38-year-old Italian stole the show, he had a strong supporting cast, with new signing Joel Griffiths delivering the opening goal and a fine all-round display on debut. The performance moved Sydney to the cusp of the top six as they registered back-to-back wins for only the second time in a turbulent season. The defeat equalled the Phoenix's worst losing streak of four, and they remain rooted to the foot of the ladder with pressure mounting on coach Ricki Herbert.
